... a few run throughs, sat around and waited for decisions to be made, and did the usual mucking around that occurs at rehersals - pleading leave for ice-cream every two seconds (probably much to everyone's annoyance). Finally it was over and us bridesmaids took Courtney to a resteraunt for dessert. Hannah Keating works here and was so surprised to see us all!
Only one day to go. There's lots happening today! Aunty Julie & Shelley Pitcher ...
... but the house they lived in was big and well furnished. Cape Spear also features a gun emplacement built during the Second World War when Newfoundland was a part of the British Empire. The gun emplacement was there to protect St John’s from Nazi ships and submarines. The battery never saw action.
Whilst at Cape Spear, we splashed out and bought an annual pass each for 'Parks Canada’ which gives free entry to all National ...
Hi Again, I took so many photos this afternoon, I decided to split up the journal entry.
Every now and then you find a diamond in the rough. That's what we found in the Railway Museum here in St. John's. What we thought would be a 20 minute visit, was more like an hour and a half. The museum tells the story of the railroad in Newfoundland, and the steam ships that began calling on small ports to supply ...
... we could try later in our trip. Instead we decided to grab a drink at an Irish themed pub called O'Reilly's, and share some very yummy poutine.
Tomorrow we have signed up for a boat tour to hopefully see some more whales, and most importantly, puffins!!! If the weather holds out (apparently they're calling for rain), we might try for a picnic lunch at a lighthouse along the "Irish Loop" in the Avalon Peninsula.
Wish us luck with the weather!!!
... along for a while, and then climbed the stairs to George Street. As I wandered, I took plenty of photos of the beautifully painted town houses, or Painted Ladies, as they are known locally. I continued climbing up and eventually found the basilica. By this time, the rain was quite heavy, so I decided to visit the museum, called 'The Rooms'. This fairly new museum is laid out 'in rooms' and although the architecture is quite modern, the layout ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Battery Hotel And Suites St. John's
In need of a refurb.
First the good news...the view from a harbourside room is great and the access to Signal Hill and Cabot Tower is simple. Now the rest...The rooms look to be in need of a remodel or at minimum a good cleaning. This was my second stay at the Battery, but I doubt that I stay again unless I learn that it has been remodeled. I realize that part of the price includes the view, but there are other places to stay in St. John's that I'll go with the next time. I found the staff at check in to be helpful and friendly, although the staff at check out were a bit more reserved. The dining area was nice, though, and I could see eating there again in conjunction with a trip to Signal Hill.
Wow. Maybe our stay was an anomaly, but it was still horrific.
The Battery was a great old hotel to stay at in Newfoundland. We received an excellent rate on a suite. The suite was large with a seperate kitchenette. Good housekeeping. The facility was old, but that was part of the charm. The staff was excellent with recommendations of the area. Friendly. We would stay here again for the great value.
We booked a 'regular' room at the Battery, when we arrived we were disappointed to find they had overbooked! HOWEVER, they did ask if we could wait fifteen minutes and they would have one of their suites cleaned and ready for us at no extra charge! We waited and it was worthwhile...I'm so glad they overbooked and gave us this room instead! It was very clean. What a view! So very impressive to look out your windows onto the harbour. The staff were also very helpful. I'd highly reccommend this hotel to any of my family or friends. We'll definately visit again.
Beautiful view, dirty dishes & Toilet
My new husband and I stayed at the Battery in the Jacuzzi Suite overlooking Downtown St. John's - it was an excellent view. The Jacuzzi was clean, however, the dishes which were in room for tea/coffee were dirty and the toilet could have used a scrubbing!! The restaurant prices were way up there - we chose to eat elsewhere and save a bundle! I would probably give the Battery another try just because of the view it has to offer.
Oh what a view !
I had to travel to St John's for an appointment and booked a room at the Battery.The service was amazing. The Staff went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. The rooms could use a few touch ups but overall it was a great experience. Oh and Who could forget the view if St John's Harbour !
I really enjoyed the location of this hotel. It is about halfway up Signal Hill from the downtown area, and has a great view of the harbour. It wasn't far too walk to downtown, though the walk can be steep. There is a geology museum close by which was interesting, and also contained a good exhibit on the sinking of the Titanic (though this may have been a temporary exhibit.)
Stayed there twice. Loved the restaurant and bar. Stay in Harbor view room. Had a great time. Close enough to downtown and Signal Hill.
Picked blueberries on Signal Hill. Would stay again. Only problem is no air conditioning during horrific heat wave.
Don't miss the Battery
Whenever I go to St. John's, which is not as often as I would wish, I try to get to the Battery Hotel. Rooms are quite adequate and well apportioned. The traveller, however, should aim to get a room on the harbour side. There one can see everything going on in the harbour, ships coming and going. It is so interesting that the traveller hesitates to leave and go out. While it is half- way up signal hill it is still within walking distance of downtown. It is also within walking distance of Cabot Tower and the new Johnson Center. (Geological exhibit). The dining room serves great meals with a Newfoundland flavor, if you wish.
